Fiona & Ali:
Good list, kindly note Nik Nesbitt is no longer IBMâ€™s Regional Director.
Itâ€™s Caroline Mukiira. As a former IBMer responsible for Public Sector Iâ€™d
strongly suggest you consider some IBM Partners too.
As a Kenyan-AMERICAN the list we have though great needs to be countered by
real HEAVY WEIGHTS! Check out if Dr. Malcolm Beech Washington DC Chamber of
Commerce is on the US FTA delegation. He is a CLOSE FRIEND very strategic
HEAVILY SUPPORTED by the International Republican Institute (IRI) I hosted
him in my Mpaka Road Marianna Guesthouse and was very impressed by his
KENYAN ROOTS NETWORK!
My experience in Washington DC for 20 years now is that to have INROADS
with American CORPORATIONS you must be a longer term planner!
I took Malcolm to the Lamu Governor through my GOK connections! Now
Americans are in the LAPSSET program but we who facilitated the meeting are
not in the picture! His Americans came quickly got married to Kenyan men
Now we meet in JAVA GIGIRI they frown at me and say â€œHAVE WE MET?â€ I tell
them â€œKenya is for us BLACKSâ€ are you still at the same TRINIDAD address
dangerous as hell in South East? My kids worked in a garage there for a
great Somali Mr. Abdul who left Kenya as a refugee when Somali was
UNILATERALLY DESTROYED by you know who!
They look around and I tell them â€œAM STILL AT THE BETHESDA ADDRESS in
Montgomery County you canâ€™t affordâ€ I have lived there 20 YEARS!
Am not rude good Kenyans! If we donâ€™t FIGHT LIKE FREEDOM FIGHTERS for our
businesses, these thugs are here to have the good life in Gigiri and
Village Market as we all TOIL IN WRONG ADDRESSES and all e did is
introduced them to our GOK contacts!
I want to volunteer to work â€œBEHIND THE SCENES with TESPOKâ€™s Fiona and give
you ammunition to counter these thugsâ€
As African businesses especially KENYA, ETHIOPIA Ghana (where Michelle
Obama traced her roots) and Nigeria we were treated too badly after Obama
won in 2008 by the same Republicans to deny our Obama a second term!
These guys colluded and destroyed our ICT companies by giving us 5 year
contracts and declining to pay us! We went to our lawyers we were told
â€œtoo bad Dr. Mary Ngunyi-Muiruri itâ€™s a USG CONTRACT YOU CANNOT TERMINATE
only SRA can terminate and by the way YOU ARE BOUND FOR 7 YEARS to not work
for any other CONTRACTOR!
By 2011 OUR BUSINESSES were crippled we couldnâ€™t support Obamaâ€™s second
term! We are blessed COVID-19 is more controlled in Kenya! Letâ€™s PROTECT
OUR BUSINESSES from complete DEMISE by the same Republicans who MERCILESSLY
TARGeted and KILLED OUR BUSINESSES!
Proudly Kenyan Citizen I fly my KENYA ðŸ‡°ðŸ‡ª FLAG HIGH with a KENYAN
PASSPORT; and US PERMANENT RESIDENT since 2000 it ainâ€™t a crime to love my
KENYA ðŸ‡°ðŸ‡ª KIPENZI CHANGU more than America my great SECOND HOME!
Baraka MOB WOTE!
